My book, Image Restored, was released in March and we are in a Restored Series here on the podcast. While this series can address body image struggles, I am teaching how you can apply it to ANY area of your life. We have covered a lot of topics in this series, so if you missed any, now is a great time to go listen to any you missed. This week our theme comes from chapter 16 where we discuss God’s love and Jesus’ blood.
Psalm 103:8 says, “The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.”
That phrase “abounding in love” can be expressed in a single Hebrew word, chesed, meaning “goodness, kindness.” This is only the tip of the iceberg in exploring the Bible and what we find about God’s love for us.
If we look at the character of God throughout all of Scripture, we see this theme of His goodness and kindness toward humanity. It’s a love that most of us don’t know from humans, yet God shows that love to us every day, no matter our failures or sins.
He loves you, my friend.
“God’s love. You can’t buy it. You can’t lose it. It is unconditional, with no strings attached. It is not dependent on your looks or any measure of performance. Love can’t be earned. It’s freely given. You can find it anywhere. It’s for everyone. Including you, no matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you’ve done. His love covers it all.” - Dr. Linda Hoover
Ask the Lord how much He loves you.
